IMEC offers a Facilitated Assessment which allows organizations to engage in an expert-led evaluation process for getting started with the Baldrige Excellence Framework. This is the ideal option for organizations interested in more prescriptive feedback and expert guidance as they move through their journey. This process has four phases:
Planning – Together with IMEC, you will identify the scope of the assessment, set expectations, define the timeline, and select resources.
Information Gathering – Facilitated by a Baldrige expert, this half day session includes leadership training and education on the Baldrige Excellence Framework. It will help guide you to complete the Organizational Profile, Baldrige Express Survey, and the submission of your organizational results.
Site Visit- Schedule a one day site visit with your Baldrige expert to gain clarity on organizational strengths and improvement opportunities.
Improvement Planning – This half day session allows leaders to review and identify priorities for improvement, based on the feedback report from your Baldrige expert.
The process takes approximately two months and offers a less intense, expedited approach for an organization to receive feedback on their level of performance excellence.
Organizations that successfully complete this process are recognized for their steps toward excellence at the annual Saluting Excellence Award Ceremony.
